Mon 9 to Wed 11 July 2018
Capturing the Place - A Three Day Artistic Retreat
CAPTURING THE PLACE: A THREE DAY ARTISTIC RETREAT WITH HILARY BEATTIE

A three-day artistic retreat for like-minded people, in the perfect tranquility of the historic setting of an old needle mill and the nearby Cistercian Abbey and grounds.

In this retreat we will be developing sketchbook skills to allow us to capture and record the essence of a place. You will learn to use colour, sketching, drawing, mark making, photographs and journalling to enable memories and impressions to be held and re-visited whenever you wish.

The cost of the three day workshop is £180, to include all your materials and tea, coffee and biscuits - just bring a sketchbook.
